I once had the opportunity to play Resident Evil 2 and it was one of the most enjoyable gaming experiences of my life. The survival horror game from Capcom really immersed me in the zombie nightmare of Raccoon City. While the control was a bit unruly, the fixed camera angles added to the immersion and suspense of the game. The game’s impressive cinematics and plot also left a lasting impression on me.
One of the most memorable features of the game was the loading screens, wherein the image of a door opening served as a break between intense moments in the game. This allowed players to take a breath and regain strength before continuing to face the zombies and other challenges in the game.
However, the loading screens were not always a safe place. There was one particular loading screen that caught many players off-guard. After opening dozens of doors throughout the game, there was one door that presented a different and unexpected surprise. As the door opened, two zombies suddenly appeared, causing a jolting scare for unsuspecting players.
This scare was so memorable that many players still remember it fondly. The moment where the door opened, revealing the unexpected zombies, left a lasting impact on many players. The game’s remake has since removed the loading screens, but it pays homage to this iconic moment with a similar zombie encounter.
Resident Evil 2’s loading screens and the game in general were a brilliant example of the originality that games once had. The game’s ability to surprise and scare players added to its enduring legacy. Overall, the game provided a unique and unforgettable experience for many players, and the loading screen scare became a cherished memory for fans of the game.
